malva hot dessert

Malva Pudding

Don’t let winter pass without enjoying this outrageously decadent and delicious malva pudding at least once! (serves 6-8 people)

What you need

1 cup castor sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon smooth apricot jam
1 and a quarter cups cake flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
pinch salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vinegar
Half cup milk


1 cup cream
Half cup butter
Half cup sugar
Half cup water

The Process

Beat the castor sugar and eggs until light and fluffy with an electric beater. Beat in the apricot jam.

Sift dry ingredients THREE TIMES.

Melt the butter and add it to milk and vinegar.

Fold milk mixture and dry ingredients alternately into egg mixture.

Pour the batter into a greased casserole dish. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes.

Melt the sauce ingredients together and pour over the pudding as soon as it is taken out of the oven. Pierce the pudding with a fork to help it absorb all that delicious sauce.

Serve hot with double thick cream or custard.
